The Jewish International Film Festival Encore Season in Australia



The Jewish International Film Festival has announced two brand new films, the fascinating documentaries Sammy Davis Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me and A Land Without Borders which will screen alongside 29 repeat screenings of festival favourites as part of the Festival’s Encore sessions.

The screenings will take place across Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane from 23 – 29 November, including sessions at brand new Melbourne venue Cameo Cinemas, Belgrave, for the very first time.

Sammy Davis Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me is a star-studded look into the life of iconic American entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. Directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Sam Pollard (4 Little Girls), the film features interviews with pop culture luminaries including Billy Crystal, Jerry Lewis and Whoopi Goldberg.

A Land Without Borders is a captivating documentary delving into solutions to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Featuring conversations with local populations throughout the West Bank, the film follows award-winning writer Nir Baram as he is forced to challenge his entire political belief system.

These additions to the program will show alongside last-chance sessions of the Festival’s most loved films, from winner of Best Documentary at the Ophir Awards Ben-Gurion, Epilogue to Best Feature winner at Tribeca Film Festival, Keep the Change, winner, and plenty more.

“The Festival may wrap up for another year on 22 November, but our Encore sessions are a great chance for audiences to enjoy some of their favourite stories one last time, or catch films they may have missed. Be prepared to life, cry, and everything in between – all over again!” said Jewish International Film Festival Artistic Director, Eddie Tamir.
